F1 launches charity sim racing tournament

There is quite a prize on offer!

F1 has announced its support for BBC Children in Need through a United Kingdom-based sim racing tournament.

The challenge will take place on the F1 23 video game and will aim to raise funds for the BBC charity appeal.

Competitors will be offered the chance to set their fastest qualifying lap time around British Grand Prix venue Silverstone, with the fastest 50 securing a place in a ballot.

Two random entrants will then be selected to race in a live show to be broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Three in November, ahead of the Children in Need live appeal.

The tournament began at last weekend's British GP and will continue at this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, before moving on to other events across the UK throughout the autumn.

Those taking part will be encouraged to donate to BBC Children in Need, with all proceeds going towards supporting local charities and projects that make a difference to young lives across the UK.
